agreement on the kinds of steps we need to take in order to lower the cost of health care in america and expand access. the bill before us in my view is a big government takeover of our health care system that will replace the current health care that americans get. republicans have offered better solutions all year on the major bills that have come to this floor. i think we had a much better solution on the stimulus bill that would have created twice the jobs at half the cost. i think our better solution on the budget clearly had less spending and less debt and lower deficits. i think our all-of-the-above american energy plan -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman will suspend. the gentleman may proceed. mr. boehner: i think our all-of-the-above american energy plan was a much better solution to the national energy tax, the so-called cap and trade bill that was on this floor in june. and i believe what we have before us as the republican substitute is a commonsense plan that takes steps toward reducing the cost of health insurance in america and expand access. simple things like

the lives of livelihoods of every person in america. for many that means higher taxes and for even more, it will mean an unprecedented intrusion of federal government bureaucrat into the way we receive health care. this is a fundamental erosion of our freedom. the great freedom fighter abraham lincoln gave a speech in springfield, illinois, in 19 -- in 1838 where he touched on the idea of the loss of freedom. he was very explicit. he explained that our country could one day suffer a los of freedom, not by an outside attack, but from within. i'll quote what lincoln said and then give it in its larger context. at what point, then is the approach of danger to be expected? i answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. it cannot come from abroad. its destruction be -- if destruction be our lot, we must ourselveses be its author and finisher. as a nation of free men, we must live through all times, or die by suicide. the larger context of those words is as follows. in the great journal of things happening under the sun, we, the american people, find our account running, under d
